New answers for old questions: The evolutionary quantitative genetics of wild animal populations

Kruuk, Loeske; Slate, Jon; Wilson, Alastair J.

Description

Recent years have seen a rapid expansion in the scope of quantitative genetic analyses undertaken in wild populations. We illustrate here the potential for such studies to address fundamental evolutionary questions about the maintenance of genetic diversity and to reveal hidden genetic conflicts or constraints not apparent at the phenotypic level. Trade-offs between different components of fitness, sexually-antagonistic genetic effects, maternal effects, genotype-by-environment interactions,...[Show more]
